We do not recommend Flash Lite development on current Nokia devices, and all Flash Lite articles on this wiki have been archived. Flash Lite has been removed from all Nokia Asha and recent Series 40 devices and has limited support on Symbian. Specific information for Nokia Belle is available in Flash Lite on Nokia Browser for Symbian. Specific information for OLD Series 40 and Symbian devices is available in the Flash Lite Developers Library.

The article discusses how to send an SMS/MMS using Flash Lite.

Sending SMS/MMS

To send SMS or MMS you have to use the GetURL() function with this statement in parameter:

 sms:aNumber?body=A Message


 mms:aNumber?body=A Message

An example:

myNumber = "4815162342";
myMessage = "Hi, This is my message";
getURL("sms:" add myNumber add "?body=" add myText); //Send a SMS
getURL("mms:" add myNumber add "?body=" add myText); //Send a MMS

In Symbian phones, this function will not immediately send the message but open the built-in SMS/MMS editor filled with the given parameters.

Checking SMS/MMS capabilities

You can check if Flash Lite can send SMS or MMS by using this numerical variables:

  • _capSMS: Set to 1 if Flash Lite can send SMS. Otherwise, this variable is undefined.
  • _capMMS: Set to 1 if Flash Lite can send MMS. Otherwise, this variable is undefined.
  • In Flash Lite 2.x, it is recommended to use System.capabilities.hasSMS and System.capabilities.hasMMS variables.

An example:

getURL("mms:4815162342?body=Hi, This is my message"); //Send a MMS
